  • Pre/Print heater temperatures

    I currently run a Mimaki JV3-160 solvent ink printer and i was wondering if anybody could tell me what the reason is for a pre-heater and in what circumstances would i adjust the temperature? I am currently having troubles with ink pooling on the media, if i turn up the print heater, the ink will stick but the media cockles and the print head will strike, but if i turn it down, the ink will not adhere to the media and dry fast enough. I am running a fairly slow print speed at 8pass, so slowing the print down anymore isnt really an option either?

    I am also having troubles with the height of the print head, it sits fairly low, so the head is constantly striking and destroying prints, but if i raise the heads to a banner setting, then the print quality is terrible and i get a strange patchy kind of print when printing solid colours...?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanking you in advance

    A slow 8 pass lays down a lot of ink. I'm not familiar with a Mimaki. What media are you using and is the coating receptive to solvent inks?

      Head print is mode high
      materials: decan or Hiflex?
      I think with decan : 720x720 dpi, 4 or 8pass, heater: pre:50 and print:55 C, it will a high quality. with Hiflex : 360x720 dpi, 4pass, heater: pre:40 and print:45 C, it will a high quality.
      what do you use to software printer?
      free contact!!!

        It's not an issue of inexperience in web design work. My guess is that you put the site together without putting much thought into its purpose. As Calebninja notes, 'It seems to be a mix of a personal...

        You strike me as the type of guy who is well-accustomed to software and systems. The average user like the guys in our front office, can break things unintentionally by just looking at them. Either system...
